Dori Hillestad Butler and her dog, Mouse


OK, I am not working today--I am not even in Minnesota--but I had to do a quick post here to let you all know that  Dori Hillestad Butler won the Edgar Award last night for her juvenile mystery, "The Buddy Files: The Case of the Lost Boy."

Butler lives in Coralville, Iowa, now, but has long Minnesota roots, growing up in Fairmont and living in Minneapolis, Bemidji and Rochester.

You can read my earlier post about Butler and her work here.

Between Butler and the folks from Once Upon a Crime, who won the Raven Award, I think Minnesota was well-represented.
